 Just One Of The 400,000

How proud it makes me to see that someone has gone to the trouble to do the necessary research to tell the true story of how it happened. As one of the Test Pilots who was honored to have the opportunity to participate in what I always say was the highlight of my current 89 years, this book brings back many memories. Participating with many hours flying the Apollo during Re-entry studies, Rendezvous and Docking, Emergency Egress, Boost and Abort, Thruster Anomalies etc. I spent countless hours in the simulator working with the Human Factors Group at North American Aviation where the Apollo was assembled. Not to take any credit away from the Astronauts who put their lives on the line, the book points out that it was the countless thousands who did the work necessary culminating in the successful Lunar Landing, that made it happen. Kudos to the author, he did yeoman service in this book. [by Wallace A Johnson MBA]
